Man Utd transfer news: Fans react to Garnacho masterclass

Alejandro Garnacho

Alejandro Garnacho assisted Marcus Rashford’s winning goal as Manchester United beat Manchester City 2-1 at Old Trafford.

City took the lead through Jack Grealish, before Bruno Fernandes and Rashford’s goals turned the game on its head.

But much of the praise for United’s comeback has to go to 18-year-old Garnacho, who injected life into the attack when he came on in the second half.

Garnacho turned City defender Nathan Ake and squared to Rashford for an easy tap-in to get revenge for the 6-3 thrashing in October.

Erik ten Hag’s side are up to third in the Premier League, just one point behind the champions and six behind Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal.

Man Utd fans react to Garnacho

Garnacho may not have gotten on the scoresheet today, but his influence on the game cannot be overstated.

He was the bright spark that helped United end the second half far better than they started it.

Today’s Manchester derby was not the first time Garnacho has impressed for United. The Argentina international is having a solid season, especially for such a young player.

United’s fortunes have turned around under Ten Hag, who seems to have taken no time at all to adjust to English football.

The Dutchman has cleared out the deadwood at the club, Cristiano Ronaldo in particular, and built a young, hungry team that the fans are proud of.

United’s next game is against Patrick Vieira’s Crystal Palace on Wednesday night.
